    Hi! My readers asked me if I could start a forum with them, because discussion in the comments is a little uncomfortable. I'd like to do that but I'd also like to copy my blog content to that forum and create a board with how-to guides. I assume this can be punished, because it's duplicated content, am I right? Can I do something to have my content in two places at a time without getting filtered or something?

    i'm very far from a SEO expert, but i don't see any problems with this, you just make sure that the content on your blog is already indexed before you post it to your forum (if your main goal is to rank the blog, but not the forum), if it would be a problem, everybody would be in huge trouble, because you can't really stop others to steal your content and post it on their own sites

    at least this is what i think with my simple mind, maybe others can ratify this or say that i shouldn't give advices in a thread where i obviously don't belong lol

    What they mean by duplicated content is that you posted the same thing twice or many times in the forum itself, if you're just pasting from your website once, it's not a duplicate.

    Just make a link to the original content/post so you don't have to worry about the duplicate content punishment thing.
